I'll warn you that I don't look like myself anymore. I puffed up big time and I'm just over it. It is what it is and the same thing happened in my last pregnancy. The good news is that I only have a week left (versus 3 weeks like last time) AND, most importantly, we're both healthy. Soooooo, I hate the way I look but it is temporary and I'll be back to my old self soon with a beautiful baby in my arms!
(versus 2 weeks ago!)
Plus, when will I learn to take this picture at the BEGINNING of the day, instead of at the end of the day when I'm a complete mess?
Baby's size: 19 1/2 inches and 6.8 lbs, like a leek; the doctor said she's probably going to be in the low 8's...we'll see!!!
Cravings: sweets! and water
How I'm feeling: puffy; I'm also having some low pain and LOTS of Braxton hicks contractions
Sleep: turning over is painful, and I'm starting to have a little bit of insomnia from being so excited-ha!!!
My favorite part of this week: my grandmother sent me a care package with some goodies and a blanket that she made for Kate
Planning: just some cleaning; everything is ready. Brian needs to get the video camera ready and install the car seat
In case I go early and this is my last weekly post (yeah, right!), I just want to say how blessed I am and that never for a second do I take this for granted. It is a wonderful miracle. I also am so excited because I know what we're in for and how much I'm going to love Kate.
Brian and I had some "me" time for ourselves this weekend. I went to get my hair done and he played golf. Look at his little sunburnt face!
Harper played with a diaper box
and had a blast!
